A really underrated IPA. Big citrus and hop flavor. Easy drinking as well.

12 oz. bottle.
After having this on cask dry hopped with Citra. This bottle version pales in comparison. The appearance is world class! Medium amber body with a white fizzy head. Let's smell it! Very earthy with that onion/garlic hop bite with some caramelized wheat grains. Almost smells like a hoppy German Lager. Well let's taste this! First hits of some citric rind and then follows through with more garlic earthiness. The malts are sweet and caramel. Finishes fruity and semi-dry with a lingering leafy/hoppy bitterness. The feel is sappy and fizzy carbonation.

Overall: This is a good brew that I would drink again. It reminds me of a intensely hoppy German Lager vs. An Ale. Yet it doesn't have that citric hop flavor that I seem to enjoy on my DIPAs. Then again, I had this base beer on cask dry hopped with Citra and that brew is mind boggling good. This is enjoyable yet lacks in the "Citra" department that its supposedly hopped with. All in all, this brew is recommended.

The beer is a radiant sunset hue with a thick, soapy, white crest. Aromas of pine, hops, floral notes, biscuit malt. Clean flavor. Hop forward with alcohol pretty well masked. Certainly one of the better offerings from Flying Dog.

Really been enjoying this brew a lot, convenient supply here in Maryland. Nice complex flavor, deep amber pour, not too bitter but you know you’re drinking a quality IPA. Finishes well, wish I had another!
